MAInC 2023 – Conference – Impressions

On June 13 and 14, the first regional conference on artificial intelligence took place in the Gutenberg Digital Hub in Mainz ("First Mainz and Friends Artificial Intelligence Conference (MAInC 2023)"). MAInC 2023 featured keynotes by Dinesh Chenchanna (ZDF), Roberto Esposito (Univ. Torino), Nuria Oliver (ELLIS Alicante), and Wanja Wiese (Ruhr-Uni Bochum). The scientific program also included peer-reviewed contributions, with in total 15 talks and 19 poster presentations. Amongst others, first results from the TOPML project, funded by Carl Zeiss Foundation, were presented, as well as general developments of AI from methodological and societal perspectives. The conference venue, Gutenberg Digital Hub, proved to be an excellent choice for such an event. We were also pleased about the participation from industry and neighboring disciplines. We would like to thank the Carl-Zeiss Foundation for funding this successful event.

SWR has a news report, starting at the 3rd minute, about the first Mainz Artificial Intelligence Conference.

The TOPML project ("Trading off Non-Functional Properties of Machine Learning") officially started on the 1st of July, as agreed upon by the Carl-Zeiss Foundation and JGU [maybe: the TOPML committee?]. An online kick-off meeting has taken place on the 6th of July, hosted by the principal investigator Prof. Stefan Kramer who was joined by the academic and administrative personnel involved in the project.

Prof. Stefan Kramer gave an informal presentation which touched upon the various themes of TOPML (fairness, interpretability, resource-efficiency, privacy, law and ethics) and described opportunities for collaboration. In particular, a series of lunch meetings is currently being planned. As the project members have different backgrounds, information sharing and regular informal meetings will help foster collaboration and multi-disciplinarity.

New PhD. Students and researchers are currently being hired, with the first ones starting in the month of July. More hirings are currently planned for early Fall.

The findings from the various themes are to be used at JGU itself, but also transferred to industrial practice. The KI Lab itself is to be located at Mainz University of Applied Sciences due to its proximity to regional and national industry.  The  developed methods in the planned research project will be implemented as software applications in an AI laboratory. They will serve to test and validate the developed methods. In addition, the implementation of the results as executable software applications ensures a successful transfer to science and industry

The University of Medicine Mainz also participated in the meeting as a way to further explore their interest in joining the TOPML project.
